Items in the report that get missed when a report is not read are the defective items.
Those defective items then become major problems like; leaks in roofs, stone falling off the front of the house,
the water heater is leaking, the A/C conks out, then the owners of their home become really pissed off!
Then the blame game starts and people want things paid for instead of taking care of it to begin with.
Yes this happens, but not that often because our reports are easy to read if they get read!
Our Reports Come with Photos and a Summary Page with Defective and
Marginal Items for Easy Organization and Reading!
